Lance Zierlein 2019 NFL mock draft 3.0: Raiders give offense jolt

It's Draft Day! Here's my final mock of the first round.

Kyler Murray
Oklahoma · QB - Junior (RS)

There has been a lot of talk about whether or not Murray will be the pick, but I expect Arizona to select the former Sooner.

Nick Bosa
Ohio State · DE - Junior

One of the prospects with the highest floors goes to a team that continues to make big investments in its defensive line.

Quinnen Williams
Alabama · DT - Sophomore (RS)

The Jets could try to trade down, but with no takers on a swap, they pick my top-rated prospect of 2019.

Ed Oliver
Houston · DT - Junior

This might be a bit of a surprise to some, but it's believed the Raiders carry a high grade on the explosive interior penetrator.

Devin White
LSU · LB - Junior

This one should come down to White vs. Josh Allen. We'll go with the alpha linebacker in this scenario.

Josh Allen
Kentucky · EDGE - Senior

The Giants could be looking to scoop up either Devin White or Allen if one of them falls to sixth. Of course, there is the possibility of a QB going here, too.

Jawaan Taylor
Florida · T - Junior

Tough call here between T.J. Hockenson and Taylor, but Taylor is physical and will get the running game cranked up.

Dwayne Haskins
Ohio State · QB - Sophomore (RS)

PROJECTED TRADE WITH LIONS. I'm hearing the Lions want to move out and the Redskins want Haskins. So, this trade would make plenty of sense.

T.J. Hockenson
Iowa · TE - Sophomore (RS)

The Bills would be very happy to see Hockenson fall to them here. If he's gone, then Jonah Williams could be the guy.

Devin Bush
Michigan · LB - Junior

The Broncos are a tough read, but they have an opening at inside linebacker and this is a weak class outside of the top two prospects at the position (Bush and Devin White).

Montez Sweat
Mississippi State · EDGE - Senior

Don't sleep on this possibility. The Bengals could use more edge rush and did their homework on Sweat.

Andre Dillard
Washington State · T - Senior (RS)

The Packers could go in a number of directions here, but ultimately may ask Dillard to slide to the right side to help protect Aaron Rodgers.

Christian Wilkins
Clemson · DT - Senior

The Dolphins' defensive line coach (Marion Hobby) coached Wilkins during his first two seasons at Clemson. This could be an easy sell.

Jonah Williams
Alabama · OT - Junior

Williams offers versatility up front and would help open up running lanes for Atlanta's offense.

Clelin Ferrell
Clemson · DE - Junior (RS)

PROJECTED TRADE WITH REDSKINS. The Lions could use another defender off the edge, and Ferrell fits the mold of the players Matt Patricia worked with in New England at DE.

Rashan Gary
Michigan · DE - Junior

The labral tear in his shoulder causes him to slide, but not beyond the edge-needy Panthers.

Daniel Jones
Duke · QB - Junior (RS)

The Giants get their quarterback of the future.

Cody Ford
Oklahoma · G - Junior (RS)

The Vikings could see Ford as a tackle/guard prospect who offers additional value because of his flexibility.

Brian Burns
Florida State · EDGE - Junior

The Titans take an edge burner who can attack division-rival QBs Deshaun WatsonAndrew Luck and Nick Foles.

Greedy Williams
LSU · CB - Sophomore (RS)

The Steelers could go in a number of directions -- even at CB -- but I'll take the best of the bunch here.

DK Metcalf
Mississippi · WR - Sophomore (RS)

Seattle has love for height-weight-speed prospects and happens to have a need for those traits at outside receiver.

Garrett Bradbury
N.C. State · C - Senior (RS)

Landing Bradbury might be a perfect scenario for an offense that needs to upgrade its interior blocking.

Greg Little
Mississippi · T - Junior

The Texans need help at both cornerback and offensive tackle. This is a difficult choice, but let's take one of the few true left tackles in this draft.

Josh Jacobs
Alabama · RB - Junior

With Marshawn Lynch out of Oakland's plans, this might be an easy card for the Raiders to run up to the podium.

Darnell Savage
Maryland · S - Senior

The Maryland ballhawk has been a red-hot name in scouting circles of late, and the Eagles could take him to invigorate the back end.

Jeffery Simmons
Mississippi State · DT - Junior

Colts GM Chris Ballard loves drafting trench players. He also believes in patience, which will be needed with Simmons, who suffered an ACL tear in February. Indy steals one of the best players in the draft here.

Marquise Brown
Oklahoma · WR - Junior

"Hollywood" is smaller (5-foot-9, 166 pounds) than some teams would like, but he's also able to attack all three levels of the field.

Byron Murphy
Washington · CB - Sophomore (RS)

Murphy measured under 6-feet tall and didn't run an impressive 40-yard dash (4.55 seconds) at the NFL Scouting Combine, but he is extremely instinctive and as tough as you want them at corner.

Dexter Lawrence
Clemson · DT - Junior

Lawrence is still raw, but has elite size and potential.

Noah Fant
Iowa · TE - Junior

While the Packers need a wide receiver, Fant might be too tough to pass up. He's basically a big receiver in the slot.

Chris Lindstrom
Boston College · G - Senior

Hard-nosed grinder who can thrive in a variety of run schemes.

Drew Lock
Missouri · QB - Senior

New England could try to trade this pick, but with so much draft capital (league-high 12 total picks), the Patriots have the luxury of spending this selection on the heir apparent to Tom Brady.
